Today I started sorting through my studio stuff. In my sorting I came across some felt, ribbon and fabric scraps that gave me an idea. Since I would rather be creative than anything else, I took a break from puttering and made these.
I grabbed my letter stamps, an ink pad and some skeleton keys. I tore the canvas in strips and then stamped out "the key to my" and added a heart stamp. I didn't have a heart stamp to use so I made one with a carrot!
It turned out great! I stamped the heart on the end of each phrase then hand sewed the strips of canvas to the front of the heart with black thread. Then I used a black zigzag stitch to close the heart up. A little black ribbon bow holding the skeleton key on and bob's your uncle!
I haven't decided what I'll do with them but at least now I have less fabric, felt and ribbon to pack! I think that I will probably keep one (since I like them!) and give the rest as gifts or maybe list them in my etsy shop. We'll see....
